Specialist Robotics Companies especially those specializing in the production and supply of UVC Robots have seen a massive increase in interest and sales over the last 12 months. The autonomous and self-driving machines will navigate around specific rooms killing bacteria and microorganisms with ultraviolet light. Many are pre -programmed and mapped to specific locations and cleaning very often takes place at the end of the day and first thing in a morning to ensure maximum effectiveness.
UVC is an energetic wavelength of light which is incredibly good at destroying genetic material. Scientists discovered many years ago that they could harness UVC to kill microorganisms and since around 1878 artificially produced UVC has become a staple method of sterilization.
Although there hasn’t been time to carry out specific studies to test the effectiveness of UVC on COVID-19, previous studies have shown that UVC is particularly efficient at killing other Coronaviruses such as SARS.
When UVC is targeted at surfaces in specific rooms, it works by breaking down the RNA and DNA of the Viruses and bacteria specifically destroying them and stopping them from reproducing, multiplying and more importantly spreading.
Since the recent pandemic, UVC Robots have become incredibly popular and are being used in Hospitals, Care Homes and lots of public places including Gym’s, Restaurants and Bars. The UV Disinfectant Robots are not there to replace conventional cleaning but are adding an extra level of sanitization which not only gives staff peace of mind that their premises are as sanitized as they can be but it is also another assurance for customers that the setting they are in, is well cleaned.
UVC Robots are now being used all over the world providing an extra level of defence in the fight against COVID-19. With many public places including restaurants, Event venues and hospitals desperate to get back some semblance of normality, UVC Robots are one solution that is certainly helping things improve.
